Yael Meyer has been a staple of the Latin American and US indie pop scene for more than a decade. “Known to belt out music and combine electronica, pop and folk sounds in unprecedented ways,” according to Thread MB, her music has been described by Entertainment Weekly as a “bouncy, ebullient electropop that should appeal to the considerable number of people who are still waiting for Grimes to write another ‘Oblivion'” – high accolades for an artist that grew up in a country far from the bells and whistles of the US music industry and who has built her career mostly on her own. Produced by Bill Lefler, Meyer’s longtime collaborator with whom she worked on previous albums Everything Will Be Alright (2011) and Warrior Heart (2104). The raw, naked, autobiographical, and hopeful songs on the release were all written during a time of intense change and transformation.
“Huracán” was recorded in Los Angeles, CA and Santiago, Chile. It’s a 5 song journey of epic, cinematic and sometimes heartbreaking songs that tell the story of our heroine as she faces her own hurricane. The journey culminates with “Technicolor”, a song full of color, joyfulness and fun, which was also co-written with Gaby Moreno. The release is a deep, obscure and sometimes luminous journey through the emotions that connect us all and make us human.
“A young artist who eats, breathes, and lives passion, creativity, and sweeping shades of vibrant color.” -Thread MB
